In population genetics the variation between groups is greater than the variation within groups.

It seems Mrs Fiidymont's place seemed to attract suspicious sorts...

Echo 10th Nov 1888

"Another man was also detained during the day at Commercial-street on account of his suspicious movements. A man named Peter Maguire says that about eleven o'clock on Saturday night he was drinking at the public-house kept by Mrs. Fiddymont, in Brushfield-street, which is known as the "Clean House," when he noticed a man talking very earnestly to a young woman. He asked her to accompany him up a neighbouring court, but she refused, and afterwards left the bar. Maguire followed the man, who, noticing this, commenced running. He ran into Spitalfields Market, Maguire following all the while. The man then stopped, went up a court, and took off a pair of gloves he was wearing and put on another pair. By a roundabout route he proceeded into Shoreditch and got into a bus, which Maguire still followed. A policeman was asked by Maguire to stop this bus, but it is said he refused, and Maguire continued his pursuit until he met another constable, who at once stopped the vehicle. The man was inside, bundled up in a corner. Maguire explained his suspicions, and the man was taken to Commercial-street Station, where he was detained pending inquiries. These are only two evidences - and there are many others - that in the present state of public excitement in the Whitechapel district the safety - or at any rate the liberty- of no man who acts in the least degree incautiously is safe."

Hi. Joshua,

Interesting detail about the man removing his gloves and putting on another pair... I wonder if the first pair had blood on them?

Had to be traces of blood. This is 1888, and Britain won't start using fingerprinting until 1905, so he would not have worried about that. It also stands to reason he would not care about the issue of DNA analysis at all before the 1960s (and actually that is a bit too early).

Very interesting! Is this story corroborated anywhere else? I love these little tidbits in the press about potential suspects. Wouldn't be surprised if the real killer was hidden in there somewhere.

I've never heard the story about someone calling Annie from the Ten Bells before - are there any sources for it?

Cheers!
